Some municipal authorities have it rough. Forget paper-work and the sluggish bureaucratic process. Think bigger, think never-ending, and think hard to get rid of—think graffiti. The government authorities in charge of facilities, signage, and urban zones, etc. are often overwhelmed with the swelling supply of graffiti in their jurisdiction. Graffiti is not just an eye-sore, to broken-window theorists it spells crime and to tourists it can mean the next town might be a better fit. So to maintain the town’s good name or keep a city’s aesthetics in check, certain municipal workers need a way to remove the stuff—but wait, it’s permanent, right?
The alleged fact often makes the most viable option of the municipal worker to hire either a contractor or volunteer group to venture out to the crime scene to perform an expensive or hodge-podge paint-over that leaves the finished product looking only slightly better than the vandal’s portrait. Not to mention the dreaded screw-up. And to all those municipalities whose budget is not endless and care even slightly about the aesthetic appeal of their humble township, paint-overs are at-best the hard-place over the rock.
City authorities’ fear can be laid to rest with the rise of graffiti safewipes. The Urban Restoration Group who manufactures the wipes have dubbed their product, “The Best Graffiti Removal System in the World.” And who can blame them? Their product is simple, effective, and cheap. If you know how to use a paper towel, you know how to use a graffiti safewipe. Simply wipe graffiti away. Call it magic, call it heresy, or just chemically-enhanced moist wipes, graffiti safewipes allow the removal of graffiti from virtually every surface while maintaining the integrity of the surface below. It is no wonder that this graffiti removal system is taking cities across the country by private citizen and over-worked city employees.
A town can employ a contractor to wipe off signage and walls, ask a group of children volunteers, or do the job themselves because graffiti safewipes are safe, easy, and effective. For misers, the price is circa a few cents per wipe which amounts to clean signs and happy citizens for just a few city budget greenbacks.
